The Blessed Hope

  The Resurrection of Christ brings hope. The late Emil Brunner once said, “What oxygen is for the lungs, such is hope for the meaning of human life.” As the human organism is dependent on a supply of oxygen, so humanity is dependent on its supply of hope. Yet today hopelessness and despair are everywhere.Continue reading “The Blessed Hope”

If you can’t fly then run

You are almost their, almost to the top of that mountain and then you realize when you get to the top that it’s a plateau. Whenever we think we have reached the top you look up and still, there is room to grow, another mountain to climb and other devils to fight. All those strugglesContinue reading “If you can’t fly then run”

Limitless

We all limit God’s ability to work in our lives, by what we allow Him to do. What do I mean? We choose how much we allow God to do through our surrender. When John wrote “He must increase, but I must decrease.” John knew that it took a life of surrender to see GodContinue reading “Limitless”

Your Ways – His Ways

I’m 29; hard-headed and very impatient. I like doing things my way and expect it to happen when I want it to happen. This Isn’t how God works and how He does things. While being a Christian for 15 years I still struggle with that thought. He says in His word ” For my thoughtsContinue reading “Your Ways – His Ways”

What is Your Object of Faith?

If our object of faith is on anything other than the Cross of Christ, we will fail; plain and simple. I don’t care if you pray more, read the Bible more, if your faith is not in the Cross and what was done for you at Calvary, you will not see victory in your life.Continue reading “What is Your Object of Faith?”

When Is It My Turn?

For many it’s called the waiting game. I like to call it the unbelief that has settled in the hearts of many Christians. What do I mean? Many Christians have dis-valued the power of God of His healing power, promises and His authority. How? This generation has become impatient, lazy and expect miracles to happenContinue reading “When Is It My Turn?”

Drawing Lines in the Sand

I’m a very independent person, I don’t like to bother anyone. I never like to ask and feel like I’m a nuisance to somebody if I do. I always find a way or should I say try to resolve my own issues and problems…most of the time. Ever since I got saved in 2009, IContinue reading “Drawing Lines in the Sand”

Unfamiliar Territory

Healing your heart, reclaiming your true identity of wholeness can feel like unfamiliar territory.  Love, even though it’s our true nature, can feel completely unfamiliar. It takes tremendous willingness to venture into unfamiliar territory.  We often don’t bother to venture into the “unknown” unless we’re so afraid of remaining where we are that we cannotContinue reading “Unfamiliar Territory”

Fan or Follower? Part 2

 Part 2 “The Fan” Galatians 5:7-9 ”  You were running well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump. – It’s definitely an easier life being a fan of Jesus than to live the life by following Him.Continue reading “Fan or Follower? Part 2”

Doubting Faith

Many in waiting upon the Lord find immediate delight, but this is not the case with all. A deeper sense of sin may be given to you instead of a sense of pardon, and in such a case you will have need of patience to bear the heavy blow. Ah! poor heart, though Christ beatContinue reading “Doubting Faith”
